How We Met

Dave and I are high school sweethearts. We started out as friends but with a little sarcasm, a lot of flirting, some hard-to-get, and a Starbucks date later, we became inseparable. He balances me in many ways. He spoils me with love and never misses an opportunity to tell me I’m beautiful. He’s as much a part of my family as I am. Eight years later, he’s the best baby daddy to our pup Leia and my future hubby!

how they asked

Ever since we met we’ve shared a mutual dream to visit Hawaii. We love to travel together and when Dave won a trip to Hawaii at work, we were ecstatic! The day after our arrival Dave told me he’d planned a surprise excursion. The dark skies that day didn’t show much promise, but we listened to “A little rain” by the Arkells and hoped in a cab. We arrived at a beach and met up with a girl named Chelsea who Dave said was the photographer for the excursion and she’d be taking us to our guide. The skies began to clear and we started our walk to the beach. Before I knew it Dave was on his knee and the skies had opened up. It was pouring but we were too excited to notice. He promised to love me forever and I promised to be his wife (best excursion I’ve ever been on)!

We’ll be married on our 10th anniversary, and we couldn’t be more excited.
